These are 3 projects I made for the park this winter.
The first is a cabinet for the sound equipment for the band. It is made of oak plywood.

The second is new table for our router. It replaces a rickety metal table and is made from 5/8 maple plywood.

The third is a planer table to replace the low table we had before that would not roll very well. It is made from 5/8 maple plywood also.

Both tables have locking casters and paddle switches. They are very simple but functional1

Cheers, JIm

Sounds like paradise at the park Jim. Nothing like improving things for the community. Nice work.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Jim, Very GOOD!

COOL projects that will make a huge difference in the shop…

I can’t figure out WHY a school band would need sound equipment…
What kind of band? Regular marching band; I can’t see it… They generate sound Big Time!
A dance band maybe could use it… but… (??)

Now, an Orchestra could use it if they wanted to boost violins & other low sound output instruments..
... all for indoor use…

When do you head Back to the Summer home? April sometime?

Thank you all for the nice comments. They all are being used regularly.

Hi Joe, the cabinet is for the High Chaparral western band who play every Thursday night.
We head back on March 18th.
